Layers by Sue Kindon

Crowning

hairdresser: forwards or backwards?
a sinew creaking
cottonwool crackle pummelling my scalp

tap tumbles tenor and baritone
Gulf Stream…..El Niño

headfirst and treacle me
it’s over in a shampoo slither

 

Snippets

blonde (soprano): I never knew
mousing indoors in the stables

brunette (mezzo): is Stainmore Pass still closed to high-sideds?

a thinning male drone             peaks and troughs
can’t make any sense of it       just frequencies

blonde: I wish I’d had two

 ..

Hot Air

hairdryer, hairdryer blowing a sirocco
is that interference……..or the radio?

radio 1…..or 2…..or local
a song I once knew…….boiled down to orchestral

saccharin stirred again and again
or is that the neighing of the telephone?

..

Roller-Loop

same time next week then
money in the tilldoor-pingsee-yer

a transporter rattles by    on its way
its way back……….or a diversion

same time next week then

 ..

Sweepings

brunette: it’s always easier to go darker

if I listen………..really listen

there’s the wind getting in a lather

..

above it…………………..it’s a strain

silence

where you can hear a hairpin  d

                                                 r

                                                 o

                                                 p
